Bulgaria’s Minister of Agriculture Kiril Vatev and his Ukrainian counterpart Mykola Solski agreed to exchange data on exports and imports of certain agricultural products in a regular manner. This became clear at an online meeting between the two ministers. Kiril Vatev and Mykola Solski discussed Ukraine’s commitment to control exports. 

Minister Vatev briefed his counterpart on the memorandum signed between the Bulgarian government and the Bulgarian agricultural producers, providing for a ban on imports of sunflower from Ukraine until the end of November. After this period, a licensing regime for the export of sunflower, wheat, maize and rapeseed will be in force, according to an agreement between Ukraine and the European Commission. Kiril Vatev also informed Mykola Solski about the concerns of Bulgarian farmers regarding the import of sunflower oil, powdered milk, honey, sugar and frozen raspberries from Ukraine.
